“What’s that?” you cry. “What’s an interdimensional insurance agent and who is Tom Stranger?”
From the official blurb on Audible. com:
“Have you ever seen a planet invaded by rampaging space mutants from another dimension or Nazi dinosaurs from the future? Don’t let this happen to you! Rifts happen, so you should be ready when universes collide. A policy with Stranger & Stranger can cover all of your interdimensional insurance needs. Rated “Number One in Customer Satisfaction” for three years running, no claim is too big or too weird for Tom Stranger to handle.
The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimensional Insurance Agent – by: Larry Correia Narrated by: Adam Baldwin
If you like funny science fiction, this was one of the funniest things I’ve ever listened to. It was obviously written for audio. The author is part of the story, as is the narrator (Adam Baldwin).
If you like science fiction and you’ve got a weird sense of humor, this is laugh-out-loud funny. It’s just over 2 hours long. I probably will listen to it at least twice, just to pick up on all the humor and wit. It makes fun of science fiction as a genre, and sci fi writers. It also does a great take-down on insurance companies, their agents, and customer service as well as those people who won’t stop calling and trying to sell you something.
As a side note, we’ve been getting a deluge of calls from a company that comes up on Caller ID as “Burial Insurance” … so maybe they know something we don’t know? Or maybe it’s TOM STRANGER!

Wow! Great minds think alike. I just finished the Audio Books yesterday. It was funny.
It was. It was satire wrapped in parody. I could use more of that 🙂
Yes. A fun read that had me chuckling during my breaks at work.
It’s a nice, compact book, too. These days, I like them short. I get to read the whole thing without long delays in the middle 🙂
Burial Insurance? Now that’s just plane creepy.
I thought so too. Besides — who buys burial insurance from a blind telephone call? That IS creepy.

That is sneaky.
Sounds like a winner – i’ll try to listen to it after i finish my latest.. a book by an up-and-coming Irish author titled Operation Trumpification. It’s a satire about an Irish family with a father who finds a orangey blond wig and develops a sense of hunger for power (the cover shows him looking like a trump caricature.) It has potential! – I’ll say more once i’ve read it. 🙂
I’m avoiding all things political, at least as reading matter. Too much of it everywhere else. I’m looking for something a little more along the lines of “fun.”
